Unique stuff about me:
I've lived among six cultures and in seven U.S. states, and am now thrilled to be settled in Minnesota. Though I am caucasian, I grew up on an American Indian reservation and was terrified of white people for some years. The culture shock I endured as a child has made me a deeper, more empathetic, and more observant person than I may have been otherwise. I was the high school state basketball tournament queen and a foreign exchange student. I am an environmentalist at heart, and try my best to live green. I am exceptional at laughing at myself. There are certain foods that change my mood. I have ruined key moments in several thriller movies for other movie-goers. So, out of respect for others and for preservation of my sanity, I do not watch scary films. Except for this behavior in theaters, I'm not scared to make a fool of myself.
I love to sing and am in a well-known local choir. Singing lifts me with endorphins. I enjoy cooking, especially baking. I decompress with a book, hike, bike ride, yoga, TV, or the internet. Photography and crafting are interesting. I love Netflix, especially in the winter, and have got a thing for trees, year-round.
Who I'm looking for:
A man who is mature, unselfish, honest, a good communicator, fun, intelligent, down-to-earth, open-minded, passionate, compassionate, and who enjoys cultural events, the outdoors, and maybe even travel. Ideally, he is musical, or at least appreciates a musical variety. He is loyal, empathetic, reflective, good with kids, and has a college degree. He pushes my comfort zone and enjoys experiencing life versus simply following life's routines. He'll be a good listener, but will not be afraid to tell me if I need to wrap it up. He'll make me laugh and will occasionally make my jaw drop with shock. I want to share a deep connection and laugh and cuddle often with my guy. I am hoping to find a man who will be my fun and loving companion many years down the road.
